In a pub Britanny, I had me a drink or three
I can vaguely recall, a pretty girl was standin' there
Ran her hand through my hair, took me off for some air
I hope we had a good time, for I woke without even a dime

I'm a sailor that's all that I am, I've been in many a land
Had a million girls but never have the urge to stay
I was born to be on the rollin' sea
That's where I'll be a livin' and I'll be a dyin' someday

Well, I copped me a ship once more that was bound for Singapore
I got in a card game that lasted for thirty some days
I made my shipmates sad, I took all they had
I taught those rosy cheek lads, they don't be underratin' ol' dad
I'm a sailor, that's all that I am

Three more days and we'll be in port, we'll have twenty four hours of sport
We'll spend our hard earned money, as fast as we can
Lift the glasses high and tell the pretty girls lies
And then we'll run for the harbor, that's the life of a sailor man
I'm a sailor that's all that I am

Howard Harlan
